Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Beginning a psychotherapeutic journey has the power to be a sacred ritual of initiation—a bold act of self-assertion, self-worth, self-healing, and self-love.
By showing up for the therapeutic process, you may find that you are bravely and courageously:
- Showing up for yourself more fully
- Listening to the deeper parts of you
- Allowing yourself to be held, supported, and seen
- Learning to self-soothe and regulate your nervous system
- Taking a stand for your inner child’s needs
- Noticing where you might take responsibility for your healing
- Uncovering new ways of being authentically yourself
- Expressing, exploring, and embracing the shadowed, or "exiled," parts of Self
And perhaps paradoxically, as you do this work for yourself, you may find that you can generously give even more presence to the people in your life.REQUEST A VIDEO CONSULTATION
“Relationship therapy can be a powerful container to heal old wounds and develop new ways of being.”
Learning about ourselves through our most intimate relationships can be challenging, yet transformative and meaningful work.
I am trained and practiced in the trauma-informed and attachment-based Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which is extensively researched and scientifically proven to be the most effective model of relationship therapy, leading to long-term and sustainable positive outcomes in relationships.
The EFT process invites you and your partner or family member to become aware of your deeper attachment-related emotions that often connect back to ruptures of attachment that were experienced in childhood, or in other intimate adult relationships. By tending to the nuances of your own needs as well as your partner’s, you can begin to work (and play) together to facilitate corrective emotional experiences that can support relational healing and build a stronger relational bond.
I partner with couples and families as a collaborator to support you to:
- Find common ground amidst conflict,
- Increase relational resilience through nervous system co-regulation,
- Establish mutual understanding,
- Understand each other’s attachment style and coping mechanisms,
- Build empathy and trust,
- Set healthy boundaries,
- Improve communication,
- And develop new ways of being, bonding, and loving—together.
I specialize in working with: betrayal, loss of trust, grief, communication, anxious and avoidant dynamics, and high conflict.REQUEST A VIDEO CONSULTATION
